Do I just send them as image files?
my scanner was broken for half of last year and would only scan as TIFF files, which took up 3mb/page. that was fun!
and stretched them to cover a page each. That took up something similar.
That is n00bcore.
Always send documents as pdfs.
it should be an option in your scanning software
www.pdfonline.com will convert your tiff to a pdf and then email it you for free. It should be a manageable size then. Also, I think you can reduce the file size of the pdf in Acrobat. You can also save as text file if it's text you're scanning using OCR.
They're too big :'(
on a stick.
Can you not save your scan as something other than a tiff? Tiff's are generally larger files as they're not compressed as much as other files (jpgs) I think.
Oh well. They'll just have to fucking deal with it.
